    First Nancy Drew, then Harriet the Spy, and now this, for tweens, mainly. Goldie wants to be her dad's hotel detective, and she gets the chance! Eisner Award-winning writer Hope Larson (A Wrinkle in Time: The Graphic Novel) and artist Brittney Williams (Patsy Walker, A.K.A Hellcat!) wi...

    01: A biracial lesbian lead. 02: TONS of POC side/background characters. 03: A whizz-bang James Bond-esque plot. 04: The mystery-solving sensibilities of Nancy Drew. 05: Greaser/Surfer aesthetics of the 50's. 06: Super capable ladies, while some of the guys are damsels in distress...

    I figured I'd play catch up on my past comics purchases since my beloved IR romance genre (save for a few notable exceptions) is boring the fuck out of me. I'd grabbed Goldie Vance #1 just because the cover looked awesome. I grew up with Nancy Drew and this story brought a huge smi...

    Oh, goodness gracious. This is ridiculously adorable and full of good, clean fun. After all my bitching about Princeless, Vol. 1: Save Yourself and Rat Queens, Vol. 1: Sass & Sorcery, after my terrible disappointment in Unstoppable Octobia May, this comes along and redeems ...

    This was cute! I was thinking it was going to be a little less international intrigue, but I still liked it. And apparently I'm still at the point where I think "Is she gay?? She couldn't possibly be. That's too good to be true. I mean, she is admiring this girl through the window, and...

    This was a fun read but there's just something missing that makes it a 3 star book instead of a 4. The story, art, and characters are all cute but it definitely felt a bit contrived at times and I guess like it was maybe trying a bit too hard to be so quirky. Still, I enjoyed it and I'...

    Excuse me, where has this fabulous retro queer woc detective been all my life???? Everything about this is a win. The art style is bright and fun, the storyline walks just the right side of ridiculous, and it stars a 16 year old girl who kicks ass, solves mysteries, and falls for a som...

    While I loved Larson's Compass South, this one barely earned a third star from me. The story: Goldie is a young teen who yearns to be a detective at the Florida hotel managed by her dad. She gets her chance to solve a big-time mystery when it seems that all manner of skeevy weirdos...

    I really enjoyed the 1960s setting and how old school everything was. It reminded me a lot of the Nancy Drew series but Goldie is so much cooler and quirkier! ...

    Think Nancy Drew but bi-racial and queer. Goldie is fantastic. I'm in the middle of a reading slump and comics are all I can manage. This gave me all the warm fuzzies. I was like Jessica Fletcher in that gif where she's eating popcorn the whole time. ...

    Despite the question in my mind about the wartime sympathies of the German scientist who has lost a necklace at the hotel where Goldie Vance and her father work, this story is fast-moving and frankly fun. Fun because of Goldie, who has such verve and energy. And her relationships with ...

    This was a 3 star read for me. While the art style of this graphic novel is amazing the story didn't blow me away. Will possibly give the next volume a try. ...

    I don't know how to rate this book. Because I really enjoyed like 90% of it, but there was one thing in it that made me REALLY UPSET. Like, sick to my stomach upset. My first instinct was to give it a 4 because so much of it is good and cute and i want to be "fair" or whatever, but it'...

    This was so gorgeous and sweet! I'll be honest, I'm not big on kid or teen detective plotlines, so the story was a little out of my usual tastes, but the art was so pretty and the characters were so lovable, I still enjoyed it a lot and would definitely continue the series. I especiall...

    This is wonderful. The Nancy Drew Archetype has once again been invigorated and updated for a new generation. This is spunky and fun and colorful and in all ways fabulous. The mysteries are overly complicated, but they are still enjoyable to see solved. I love the energy and the sp...

    Oh, this book was just delightful! It's a Nancy Drew for the modern age, with wonderfully diverse characters, lots of humour, and an exciting mystery! It is aimed at younger readers, so the plot is relatively simple and moves fast. But it's a great read for the younger crowd, and it is...

    This was so freaking cute! Goldie is totally kickass and smart and I adore her and I want to steal Diane?s wardrobe. She reminded me of Rizzo from Grease and I?m all for whatever is happening between these two. I?m completely obsessed with the art style, with this bright colour...

    This is so cute. Goldie is a sweet girl who works in a resort with her father and her friends. She's got a passion for mysteries and that's why she helps the resort detective solve cases for the guests. Goldie also has a crush on Diane, a girl who works in a record store. I mean, could...

    This was a fun comic to read! Set in Florida, a girl called Goldie and her Dad work at a resort together. But Goldie has a passion for solving mysteries. Perfect for fans of Nancy Drew! The illustrations were colourful, expressive and displayed well. A series I will be continuing. ...

    Bless this series! Our protagonist is Goldie Vance, a biracial 16 year old girl who works as a valet at a resort hotel. In this volume, she is drawn sharing a mutual crush with another girl but does not state how she identifies. She moonlights as the on site detective and is hella smar...

    Goldie Vance is a bit of a Nancy-Drew type. Not my thing - until you put it in graphic novel form. Graphic novels are just the kind of thing to turn my brain off. The first thing I want to say is that this is one of the best-drawn graphic novels I have read. I have read a lot of YA ...
